Edmonton, Alta., Aug. 28.-Tho fin-nl Hceno In tho Knklmo murder trial wati enacted in tho supremo court tltlN morning when Sinnlsiak and TJ1-nksuk, Coppermine Kuklmos, who were found guilty by u Culgary Jury of murdering Father Leroux, Oblato missionary at Deasn Hay, in Novem-bor, 19i:i, appeared before Chiof Justice of Alhorta to receive their sentence. The Calgary Jurors brought in tho strongest possible recommendation for morcy and this verdict was convoyed to tho minister of Justice at OLtawn, together with tho Chief Justice's endorsement that it would be n crime to enforce tho death penalty upon these men and a milder form of punishment, which would liavo tho effort of acting as a salutary leKson to tho Eskimos, was suggested. Through Interpreter Patsy Klon-gcnbtirg, the sontonce was conveyod to the prisoners who looked very apprehensive. "Toll them this, Patsy," said the chief justice. "You told them at Calgary I would ask the big chief far away not to bo too hard on them, I havo asked him by a way wo havo here (telegraph) and ho says because they didn't know our *fay he won't havo them put to death for killing thoso men this time. Thoy must understand, now that they know our law, that if they ever kill again thoy must suffer." As a matter of form, and that commutation of sentence, may bo made In the usual form, ho set. October id as the date of execution, but later pointed out that, on Iho irate 3n question tho Kskimos would probably be on their way homo. If the sanction of the minister of justice can be obtained immediately, arrangements will he made to send llluksuk and Slnnislak, together with Kooha, witness, and Ilavonek and Patsy, interpreters, north by boat which leaves the Peace River on Thursday, in charge of Constable Wight. Inspector Lanauzo who commanded the northern patrol will probably proceed to Htxlna, while Corp. Bruce, third member of tho II. N". W. M.

Tho prisoners will bo punished in somo way. When they get back homo they must tell their people that if any of them kill anybody they will suffer death thomsol-vos." Prisoners bobbed their heads violently in assent as Patsy conveyod tho message to them and uttered something that sounded like "Yeap i Peap."

Phone 1206 BY THE GREEKS Athens, Aug. 25, (delayed). - M. Hous-sios, opposition member, raised a tumult in the chamber of deputies wlien ho declared that King Constantino never abdicated, but only had been dismissed by the entente powers, as proved by the fact that tho act of abdication had not been presented to the chamber. Premier Venlzelos and other deputies left their seats to protect M. Boussios from personal attacks by angry members of the majority. Later, tho possibility and opportuneness of establishing a republic in Greece was discussed. M. Venlzelos declared that parliament did not consider that tho time had arrived for a republic, but believed it its duty to give the monarchy another trial. Time Not Ripe This statement was brought out by tho speech pf George Cafantarls, chairman of the delegation which recently visited America, who said he was deeply impressed with what bo had observed of republican institutions In the United States. He moved the government's draft of the reply to the throno speech, but closed with a strong expression in favor of the establishment of a Greek republic. Venlzelos promptly made a short declaration to the effect that tho views of M. Cafantarls did not represent the government's position. He said ho had often told tho former King Constantino that the nations of the world were gradually approaching the idea of abolishing tho institution of kingship, and it depended upon the existing kings themselves to hasten or postpone this inevitable consummation. Unfortunately, Constantino's policy had been such as to deal a mortal blow to tho idea of a monarchy, and many Greeks who formerly opposed a republic now admitted Its advisability in principle, though he considered it still premature. Duty to Give Trial "The government, nevertheless," continued tho premier, "is of the opinion that it Is our duty to give the monarchy another trial. This, of course is a final trial, but I am sure that tho Greek people and tho coming constituent assembly will be disposed to ren der possible tho continuation of our presont system of democracy presided over by a king." This statement was received with prolonged applause as clearly defining the government's position on the recent growing tendency toward a republic.
